Gerry Armstrong: example
of Delusional Disorder - Grandiose
A delusion is an unshakable
belief in something untrue. These
irrational beliefs defy normal reasoning, and remain firm even when
overwhelming proof is presented to dispute them. Delusions are often
accompanied by hallucinations and/or feelings of paranoia, which act
to strengthen confidence in the delusion. Delusions are distinct from
culturally or religiously based beliefs that may be seen as untrue by
Delusions are a common
symptom of several mood and personality-related
mental illnesses, including schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia,
shared psychotic disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar
disorder. They are also the major feature of delusional disorder.
Individuals with delusional disorder suffer from long-term, complex
delusions that fall into one of six categories: persecutory,
grandiose, jealousy, erotomanic, somatic, or mixed.
Individuals with grandiose
delusional disorder have an over-inflated
sense of self-worth. Their delusions center on their own importance,
such as believing that they have done or created something of extreme
value or have a "special mission."
